Beach House – Baby (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

Baby had to choose
The floor is swept, the clothes are put away
Baby thinks he’s the one
One and only exception
April comes for one more May
And that’s a day

That’s a day
Baby’s having such fun

Can you make a judgement call?
He’ll go down the rest of them

The floor is swept, the clothes are put away
Have you heard news?
April comes for one more May
Now he’s on the wall

Beach House – Equal Mind (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

[Chorus]
In blooms they’re chasing the lights

These waves they come and they go
Even in your equal mind

Equal Mind (x3)
You were passing through this time
Equal Mind (x3)
Delicate with no defense
A silhouette that comes to me
Truly yours is just what I meant
Perfection in the accident
You honor what you love to no end
As your state of infinity
Too soon they say these goodbyes

[Chorus]
There is no way you could know

Beach House – Used To Be (2008 Single Version) (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

(we could stay inside all summer)
Used to be
Are you not the same as you used to be?

Used to be
Is it just for show?
You are coming home
To which way we feel

Does each day just feel like another lie?
(we could stay inside all summer)
In an endless night
Don’t forget the nights

And when there is nothing left to pretend
See what happens to the other

It’s always good to see you again
(we could stay until the summer)
Even if I tried so hard

Of an age that was and could never be?
We could stay inside all summer
Are you not the same as you used to be?
(see what happens to the other)
(see what happens to the other)
Even if we tried so hard
Would we still be termed as friends
(we could wait until the summer)
Like a love that we could not leave behind
See what happens to the other
When it all felt right
When we feel the most

As the sun grows high
Don’t forget the nights
Til’ I’m lost and I can not find you there
(see what happens to the other)

Just a foolish game that you hide behind?
We will give the pieces of our hearts
Would we still be coming to an end
Could you feel the fright
We will now it’s coming to an end

So we hold it close
We turn the wheel
Even if it’s coming to an end
Even if it’s simple from the start
We could wait until the summer
When it all felt right
Are you still alone?

(see what happens to the other)

Now you know
Even if we spoke the same words
We will give the pieces of our hearts

And you serve your time
Are you not the same as you used to be?

Beach House – White Moon (Itunes Session Remix) (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

The dead is not due

White moon beam on my back
White moon beam on my back

They never do
The night, a soft disguise
White moon beam on your back
Do you want me two on two?
Longest night before the dawn
No one knows where we don’t go
It never is
Sing to me goodbyes

They never do
They never do
Sing to me goodbyes
The dead is not due
Call your name when you are gone
White moon beam on your back
The night, a soft disguise
The dead is not due
Give you half but you want more
Shadow in the night
The sun will always rise
White moon beam on your back
White moon beam on my back
And I’m wrong that it’s confused
Hard to catch this side of you
White moon beam on your back
No one knows where we don’t go
Down the hill I looked so fast
Feel inside, it’s part of you
It says, it promises
Feel the moon, it doesn’t last
I cannot promise you

And I’m wrong that it’s confused

The dead is not due
Troubled boy and lucky girl
Shifting dreams, not what it seems
It’s never true
Hard to catch this side of you

Shifting dreams, not what it seems

I cannot promise you
No one knows where we will go
Shadow in the night
Bring me back into your world
Bring me back into your world

Feel inside, it’s part of you
Do you want me to want you?

Beach House – Norway (Itunes Session Remix) (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

Where you thinking that you gotta run to now

Don’t you know it’s true?
Seven figures leap the hungry mouths
Norway
Millions of stars, they open to your fate
Norway
Norway
Don’t you know it’s true?
Norway

In the season of the sun
The beast, he comes to you
With the beating of a tiny heart?
Norway
You came along
With your tiny heart
Norway
We were sleeping till
Hang on to the things that you’re supposed to say
Norway
He’s a hunter for a lonely heart
Norway
To share in all the wealth
You let us in the wooden house

Beach House – Play The Game (Queen Cover) (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

It’s so easy, when you know the rules
It’s so easy, all you have to do is fall in love
Driving me insane
This is your life, don’t play hard to get
Play the game, ev’rybody play, play the game of love
This is your life, don’t play hard to get
Love runs from my head down to my toes
It’s a free world, all you have to do is fall in love
Light another cigarette and let yourself go

Play the game, ev’rybody play, play the game of love

My love is pumping through my veins
Open up your mind and let me step inside
Rest your weary head and let your heart decide

When you’re feelin’ down and your resistance is low
Play the game, ev’rybody play, play the game of love
It’s a free, free world, all you have to do is fall in love

Play the game, ev’rybody play, play the game

Beach House – The Arrangement (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

And you go
Look outside in dark light
In a party of smiles
But could it be the other people’s smiles
Make a good one, do it right

The arrangement of lies
The arrangement of lies
And it goes
And it goes
You are only sixteen
In a party of smiles
But could it be the other people’s smiles

And you go
What you see in your mind
You were bad before you left a good life

So you make a choice to leave the good life
To chase the palm trees swaying in the night
Know that you’re really not a dancer
No vacation from here
Do you say what you mean
They are two faced in the mirror
The arrangement of lies
And it goes
The arrangement of lies
To chase the palm trees swaying in the light
Know that you’re really not a dancer
And you go
Make a good one, do it right

Beach House – Saturn Song (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

I just don’t matter
Why it turn backwards

Out a mile, out a mile
Out a mile, out a mile
I was looking for a four leaf clover
Why give good manners
White snakes play summers for that gunpowder
Out a mile, out a mile

Beach House – Rain In Numbers (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

She’s rolling down the window
Get yourselves
Always counting
[Hook]
She’s rolling down the water

The rest of your life
[Hook]
And we’ll hold you
And we’ll hold you
Clouds part
And we’ll hold you
The rest of your life
Acting funny
Were you lazy?
But it always rains
In your lace

But it always rains
[Hook]

But it’s always raining
She’s rolling down the window
In the hallroom
Spend your money
A first time
The rest of your life

But it’s always raining

Beach House – I Do Not Care For The Winter Sun (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

What’s new becomes old, what’s old is new

This time of year
Snowflakes that fall across my eyes
Snowflakes that fall across our eyes
Shortens our days to longer nights
It’s all that matters
This time of year
When I first laid my eyes on you

Cannot compare to a dark surprise
Windows and fires or the bridge you’re on
It’s all that matters
It doesn’t matter
Though darkness comes so quick in time
Build a blue fire and kneel beside
I do not care for the winter sun
This time of year

Beach House – 10 Mile Stereo (Cough Syrup Remix) (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

We’re still right here
Put your hand on this stone it’s the stone of a home you’ll know
It carries on forever
This push and pull is the force of a wave of time
They say we can throw far but they don’t know how far we throw
We stood so long we fell
The heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw
We’re still right here
Can’t say we heard it all
We stood so long we fell
It took so long

Can’t say we felt it all
It can’t be gone
Bright pyramids at night
It took so long
Can’t say we saw it all
It took so long
We’re still right here

Limbs parallel

With our legs on the edge and our feet on the horizon
They say we will go far but they don’t know how far we’ll go
The heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw
It can’t be gone
They say we will go far but they don’t know how far we’ll go
That carry us on forever
Cause this heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw
With our legs on the edge and our feet on the horizon
They said we would go far but they didn’t know how far we’d go
We stood so long we fell
Limbs parallel
That carry us on forever
It can’t be gone

Tear a moment from the days
Love’s like a pantheon

Limbs parallel
In the heat of a night, we would cry, you are not mine

Beach House – Wherever You Go (B-Sides And Rarities Album)

The sea will dry
Wherever you go
Wherever you go

Nobody is true
The light’s off

The kind you like
The kind you like
To come back in

The kind you like
The rest you know
Nobody is true
Have come back here
The sun’s just set

Wherever you go
Stick by your side
The brightened lines

No hawk in sight
Wherever you go
No end in sight
They told you so

Vince Staples – Crabs In A Bucket (Big Fish Theory Album)

Read a hundred somethin’ on the E-class dash
[Outro: Kilo Kish]
Get with that or get in the moshpit
Ain’t I lookin’ lovely on the TV screen?
Ever really cross your mind
Rollcage on the GT3
Maybe you’d avert your glance at me?
Crabs in a bucket
Nails in the black man’s hands and feet
Got a lot of problems I ain’t let go yet
Crabs in a bucket

Let ’em pop shit, give me some drums to go pop with
Battle with the white man day by day

[Verse 1: Vince Staples]
Ever really cross your mind
Need white women at the shows unconscious
And you can drop the anchor, baby
Prolly gon’ regret it in the retrospect
Wanna see you at the bottom, don’t you love it?
I know what’s under there
It’s rare they’d come across you?
If I’m feelin’ funny, guaranteed gon’ flash
Sendin’ shots but you at the top floor
I ain’t never had no chance to breathe
It never really crossed my mind to think
Young man, you not actin’ too cocky
How a show on stage like a DVD?
When they’re hatin’ so you hit ’em with the encore
I used to look up to the sky, now I’m over shit
Where’s your moxie? Ain’t you from Poppy?
Cock back, blast, put ’em in a bag
If not that then topless, earned all this
I forgot to care
Spend a lot of money on the CDG
Put me in the MoMA when it’s over with
[Intro: Vince Staples]
Lying to me, sayin’ he don’t look like me
Put him on a cross so we put him on a chain
Feds takin’ pictures doin’ play by play
I still got you here
Drowning in my own ocean
[Verse 2: Vince Staples]
Remember that I still got you
They don’t ever want to see the black man eat

I kept you hidden in my head
Prolly ’cause I’m feelin’ like the world gon’ crash

Vince Staples – Big Fish (Big Fish Theory Album)

I was up late night ballin’
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
Quarterbackin’ like I’m 40 Water mix the holy water with the Voss
Wanna be the boss then you gotta pay the cost
With the 22, 5 shot eyes on scan

Know what I’m saying?
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
I got you
So far from my past misfortune
I was up late night ballin’
Gun squeezing, I’m a real Artesian
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
I was up late night balling
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
I was up late night ballin’
Tryna get em on a straight path, got the lames mad
I was up late night ballin’
Swimming upstream while I’m tryna keep my bread
G slide right down Sawyer
If you hatin’ don’t shake my hand
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
It’s funny I was going crazy not too long ago
When we slide, you won’t see morning
That’s the city where the skinny carry strong heat
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
For the click, clack, clap or the boop, bop, bam, ’cause
I was up late night ballin’
I was up late night ballin’

No sleepin’, late nights no eatin’
You can get anything you want
I was up late night ballin’
In the foreign with the GPS addressed to your mama house
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
I was up late night ballin’
Reminiscin’ sitting in that Benz
Took the smart route, never been marked out
Shoulda been dead broke, shoulda been chalked out
Women problems every morning like the Maury show
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
From the sharks make me wanna put the hammer to my head
Tryna make it up out that jam, god damn
Learned it from the Dogg I’m from Long Beach
Of the twenty two bus stop way back when
I was up late night ballin’
I was up late night ballin’
Still down, I’m a Norf Norf soldier

At the park politicin’ with the kids
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
Bag back, let me make my bands, got plans
Take it easy, homie
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand

Another story of a young black man
You want that over there? You want that over there?
Know they hate to see me make cash, got the space dash
I was up late night ballin’
Ramona, I was round that corner
I was up late night ballin’

I was up late night ballin’

I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand
But it didn’t happen, now it’s time to get it cracking
Compensation conversations what I’m all about
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousand

Vince Staples – Alyssa Interlude (Big Fish Theory Album)

The girl has found another and
Loved that song when we were kids
I know to you
So when it- when it didn’t come together, I was just like… When it- and that’s like a real drug, isn’t it?
But, um, uh, I had a b- I mean, the stuff I write about, what do I really write about?
Now it makes me want you here
Songs about relationships that are kinda doomed from the start
But not enough distance that I’d forget

[Verse: Vince Staples & The Temptations]
I’ve got my weed songs and all my songs about my boy- uh, my ex-boyfriend, George
I should have protected you
You know, songs about when I fell in love and it went wrong
I stay locked up in my room
[Intro: Amy Winehouse]
Sunshine, blue skies
And I was so in love at the time, you know, I was like…
Sometimes you have to get all the… all the crap out the way before you hit the good stuff and you’re like "OK, I’m getting good stuff now"
So that it wasn’t like raw emotion anymore
So day after day
But I needed enough distance from it
We were in love And I was with someone that I was in love with, you know what I mean?
We were together, so- You know what I mean?
Gone away
My life is filled with gloom
Sometimes, I wish it would rain
I guess if you give me some material…
Longing for your nature’s feel
I’m quite a self-destructive person, so I guess
Please go away
Sometimes, I wish it would rain
Raindrops on my windowsill
With her went my future
It really hurt You know?
Sometimes, people disappear
Think that was my biggest fear
